performance upgrade question???

im just wondering if anyone has ever been fined for dpf delete. I know its illegal but is it being extremely enforced? also I have a 2013 6.7 f350, what kind of legal performance upgrades can I do?

Depends where you are. Up here theres no emissions testing or annual inspections and your run of the mill cop probably cant spell DPF. Commercial DOT officers would be the ones to hand out fines more likely but they usually leave the little trucks alone, they got bigger fish to fry! I havent even heard any stories of someone who knows someone that got a ticket.

thanks for the reply. i live in northern nevada where there are no emission laws. the dpf law is a federal law so it still makes it illegal. we also visit california fairly often and you know how they are. ive even heard that there are some sort of diesel checkpoints in cali but i think its more for the semi trucks like you say. i may wait untill my warranty expires, just doing a little research right now.

I can't say I've heard about anyone getting fined for the DPF being deleted, but do remember a couple years ago, a couple members posted about getting stopped and their tanks were checked for dyed fuel, but that was shortly after the ULSD replaced the older high sulfur fuel.

They check tanks up here for died fuel but thats just because its illegal to run on non farm registered vehicles. Its dirt cheap and im pretty sure not taxed either.

Where at in Nevada? I'm North of Winnemucca.

There was a guy who got a ticket in Carson city for blowing black smoke,($300) and another for tampering with obd II port ($250). The guy was gonna fight the tickets but haven't heard back.

I had no idea a person could be fined for tampering with a obd II port??

Yeah all dyed or "Offroad Diesel" is untaxed. And its usually a really high fine if you're caught.

@Bryce, I've never heard of that before, messing with the OBD port.

Im in northern California like wayyyyy up north and the CHP tend to be the most stringent cops around and as long as your not blowing smoke or showing off your straight pipe at every light your usually golden, you have to remember the average straight piped Cummins is wayyyyy louder than your powerstroke can or will be. Just use common sense and youll be fine fall in love with your truck all over again

Here in Pa we dont have emissions testing on diesels and my county doesnt have emissions testing on gas either. For the most part it seems that cops leave the trucks alone unless their doing something stupid like rolling coal or making to much noise. Ive had plenty of cops behind me that could have stopped me for the strong smell of diesel coming off my truck or having my tires poke way out passed the fenders. Also depends where you are, i live in a town of 500 with no cops and only see them if i go into one of the bigger ones.
